Become a Coach



Coaches are the key to a positive sports experience for Special Olympics athletes. As a coach, you teach sports skills and model good sportsmanship and character.  You give Special Olympics athletes the most immediate awareness of their self-worth, ability, courage, and capacity to grow and improve both on the playing field and off. 



Whether you are a past athlete, coach or have no sports knowledge at all you can still become a Special Olympics coach. All you need is the passion and dedication to enrich the lives of our athletes. You will receive all the information and training you'll need when you apply to become a coach. Our coaches would agree that you get much more from the experience of being a coach than you will ever give.
